I like that you can prepare it once and can be preserved and stored in a jar for several months. This makes it very handy and convenient for surprise guests or just to have some healthy snack ready to serve.

You can serve them in many ways. We like to enjoy them as a sandwich filling, or on a salad, and sometimes with some veggies such as roasted asparagus. However, you can serve them with several variations according to your taste and be creative with it! Also, this dish can be made with jalapenos for a spicier kick or made as the old-fashioned way with beets.

It is also convenient because it can be made with leftover eggs such as from Easter. If you run out of options of what to do with them, this is the perfect recipe to utilize some! Simply follow this recipe, and they will be preserved in vinegar for months to come!

  • To make it easy to peel the eggs, you can mix a teaspoon of vinegar with the water you are boiling the eggs in.

  • To preserve them better, ensure to keep them refrigerated at all times. This way you will have a delicious snack whenever you crave it for several months.
